Sunday Evening in the Dark

We have been losing power all day long and tonight, too. Sometimes it goes off less than a minute after it comes back on. It’s really frustrating!

It’s also bitterly cold (below zero and something like 35 below zero with wind chill) and the wind is scooting right through the house it seems. There’s an advisory against driving and we’re low on groceries, so I’ve been playing pantry roulette for a while and may be for a while longer. I rather like that though!

Daryl found some electric candles that are supposed to make the windows look cheery, and those did a great job keeping us lit when we lost power. He even found a radio station broadcasting Survivor on his weather radio so I could keep up with the finale in the dark! πŸ™‚

We spent the night stuffing holiday letters, photos and handmade cards into envelopes for the mail tomorrow. I kept going in the dark and wrote little notes on most of them. How’s that for dedication? G!

Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same. On the agenda– make cookies, string popcorn for the birds, find a holiday movie to watch, do some reading, finish cards, keep tackling Mount Laundry… oh, and I suppose I should sneak some homeschooling in there too, huh? Hmmm.

Maybe the agenda should involve a hot bath and a stack of magazines instead! Or something in the middle. πŸ™‚

  1. You know, I stupidly drove down to Tracy yesterday to pick up my son from his Dads……the roads were TERRIBLE. I had a momentary loss of judgment there. Thankfully we made it back okay.

    Our power flickered off and on just a few times and your right, it is DARN cold. Brrrrrr. About -12 right now.

    Good job on the Holiday letters, that’s also one thing I decided not to do haha πŸ™‚

    And Survivor, I’m sorry you couldn’t watch that live. It was good, that Corrine, man she’s a mean one. I believe you can watch it online though!
